Deck of the Week

For tournaments this week I choose Handlock. It is also my favorite deck, as I think it is arguably hardest and strongest deck to play. Big amount of cards allow a lot of takes on each game. This is standard Handlock. You can meet a lot of similar builds with sylvanas-windrunnerragnaros-the-firelordalexstrasza.
